social security checks and veterans benefits. soldiers on the frontline in afghanistan asked the chairman of the joint chief of staffs if they will get their checks if the government defaults. president obama talked with mitch mcconnell and met with all sides to try to beat the clock and strike the deal. >> jessica, we heard earlier on they needed about a week after the deal was passed so they could get it to the president's desk for signature. if they get a deal in the next day or on monday, do they still have time to get this signed and so we avoid this default? >> well, there certainly are still procedural things that would have to happen before they do so but at this point every person i've talk to says if they have a deal in hand they will make it happen. no one here in washington wants to see the nation default on its debt, ann. >> we are talking about talks at the white house. we have heard about those talks before. what do you know about those? any progress being made? >> reporter: it doesn't appear so. there were about 90 minutes this afternoon at the white house with nancy pelos
, that's clear, isn't it? so there he was, he was making his 15th trip to afghanistan and it was while he was over at camp leatherneck that the marines asked him, okay, if there are a bunch of pentagon cuts, how is that going to affect our equipment and stuff like that. and wherever he has gone so far during this particular swing through the country of afghanistan, the troops are saying are we going to get paid? and he's saying, i don't know. just know this whatever you are owed you'll get paid eventually. you know, and this is how this works down. if we do, talking about if we go into a debt ceiling where we can't pay our bills technically which i don't agree with anyway, let's say, the president has the tablt to decide who gets paid when. clearly the debt is going to get paid first. china and saudi arabia are paid before our military, as bad as that sounds, that has to happen, so our borrowing costs don't go through the roof and then pay the military and social security, and if you dodonn tt order, give the department of education money first, it's the president's fault. it's not congre

"half a world away from the capitol, capitol hill deadlock, the debt crisis weighs heavily on troops in afghanistan. and the top question on their minds saturday, even as bombings rocked the city around them, was one a top united states military officer couldn't answer -- will we get paid?" admiral mullen went on to say, "i don't know the answer to that question. but either way, those soldiers, all of you must continue to work every day." this is really unacceptable. a country as rich and powerful as ours, men and women with bombs going off arnold them, shouldn't wonder if this country would leave them high and dry. this afternoon i've
